About the Peer
& Engineering Peer Mentor Program was initially created to provide new
pre-science (major undeclared) students a “friendly contact” in the College of
Science and Engineering by pairing them with an upper-division science major.
As students across the College expressed interest in being mentored, the
program expanded to allow first-year and new transfer students from any S&E
major to opt in to the program. Now, the mentors are available to consult
with any S&E student who wants peer assistance in developing their 4-year
plan, choosing a major, exploring study abroad, and much more. In
addition, the mentors work with students on academic probation, providing a
safe space to talk about the student’s academic challenges and to create a new
roadmap for success.
mentors are majoring in biochemistry, electrical & computer engineering,
environmental science, general science, and applied math. They have
varied minors, extracurricular activities, and career aspirations. In
addition to the wealth of experience they bring to the program, the mentors
receive training on learning styles, time management, and more. They are
equipped to help students connect with resources across campus, to assist with
course planning and registration, and they’re empathetic listeners.
The Peer Mentor
Program has become an exceptional campus resource, providing successful
strategies for science majors. The mentors will work with academic
advisors as part of the student’s support team and they work with the college
Advising Center to provide assistance during registration week. Other
successful program events include study groups, moving nights, learning strategies
workshops, and preparation for advising and registration. One program
highlight is the “Tip of the Week” email that shares advice the mentors wish
they had known when they were first-year students.
Our goals are to
help new students transition to Seattle University, to increase their
connection to the College of Science & Engineering, and to be a resource to
all of the students and faculty of the College.
